Coronado Summer Concerts in the Park

Coronado Summer Concerts San Diego

Picture a balmy summer evening in the park on Coronado, a delightful island connected to San Diego, California by a curving bridge. People arrive with baskets of food and bright-colored blankets and camp chairs. Leafy trees and palms offer shade as you claim your spot on the lawn. In the Promenade, the U.S. Navy band assembles to give a free concert. The first notes of the brass and woodwinds fill the air, and you are transported to a magical place.

Coronado is home to a naval base, and it’s where military families live, both during and after their service. So the band honored them by playing a medley of theme songs for each branch of the military. I’m guessing that, for some vets, the music brings back somber memories.

The Cole Porter songs were a fan favorite, sung by this talented young lady. Coronado Summer Concerts San Diego

My family played games, including Coronado-opoly, complete with play money and properties to sell. And there’s a playground nearby so children can get out their wiggles. Coronado summer concerts San Diego

This looks like a lot of fun! I actually love outdoor concerts in the summer. You can make a night of it with a little picnic and a little people watching 😛

Wow – seems like everyone had a blast at Coronado. I’ve been there when visiting San Diego, but do not remember it very well. Is it the island where the Seals Base is? I remember these isles only vaguely.
